You may remember Peter and Kristy’s fantastic die cut save the dates from back in March – and today Peter is back to share the wedding invitations! Peter and Kristy wanted to honor the rustic and romantic feel of their barn wedding venue. They opted for blue and white wedding invitations letterpress printed by Twig & Fig, along with kraft paper and rubber stamp accents. I love the way the entire suite came together!
From Peter: We went for a rustic but fun look: the wedding was at a winery with a rustic red barn and we wanted to capture the old fashioned but romantic look. We had a lot of fun playing around with fonts and different ways to give the text depth. We’re just really happy with how they turned out and that we were able to do most of the work ourselves.
The main invitation was letterpress printed at Twig & Fig on 220lb letterpress paper. The RSVP, map, rehearsal dinner invitation, and envelopes were printed at home on kraft paper and 110lb letterpress paper.
We made our own belly bands and stamped them with a custom stamp and then tied it all together with navy and white butchers twine. My mother had a shoe box full of old unused postage so we got to be creative with stamps as well. We used rubber number stamps on the RSVP card to indicate how many seats we had reserved for each party.
